Join us August 27th for the CRAZY SUSTAINABLE COMMUTE! Sign up today at: www.crazysustainablecommute.org And check out the very fun video promo at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xk31oju7MF8. The CRAZY SUSTAINABLE COMMUTE is a campaign designed to inspire people for ONE day to rethink in a creative and memorable way how they can commute to work in an eco-friendly way. We challenge you to find a fun, creative and sustainable way to get to work without using your car! Let’s work together in reducing our carbon footprint by finding alternative transportation solutions. Bike, Hop, Skip, Roller Blade, or canoe! Save money, get healthy, and become a leader in sustainability at your workplace. Each small step you take to reduce carbon emissions is one BIG step closer to a healthier planet and a healthier you. Challenge yourself, your co-workers or your competition. Show Vancouver how easy it is to make a difference and just how crazy and creative you can be! Take pictures or video and share your crazy commute on our Crazy Sustainable Commute Facebook Page.
As an environmentally conscious individual, I feel I make many small sacrifices for the planet. 6 months ago I got a new job and made the comittment to become a commuter via public transit rather than driving a single occupancy vehicle to work.
It is occasionally stressful, I am occasionally late for work and I often have to wait in the cold, wet outdoors that define Vancouver...and I'm ok with it. It's a sacrafice I'm willing to make.
You'd be surpised, it only takes a few days to get used to waiting at the bus stop instead of hopping in your car. Even a day or two here or there helps - I can do it, and so can you!
